How to form information questions.
1.

- If asking about the subject, simple replace the subject with the question word.
statement:
He loves his job.
Who loves his job?
statement: Soccer is fun.
What is fun?

2. - If you ask about the predicate of the sentence (the part of a sentence which contains the
verb and gives information about the subject), there are three options:
a. If there is no helping verb in the the predicate and the main verb is not a be
verb, add the auxiliary "do" in the appropriate form.
They go to the movies every Saturday.
— Where do they go every Saturday?
He wakes up early.
— When does he wake up?
They sent a letter.
— What did they send?

b. If you ask about the predicate and there is no helping verb and the verb is a be verb,
simply add the question verb and invert the subject and the verb.
The play is interesting.
— How is the play?
c. If there is a helping verb that precedes the main verb ( for example: can, is, are, was,
were, will, would...), add the question word and invert the subject and the helping verb.
He can speak Chinese.
— What can he speak?
They are leaving tonight.
— When are they leaving?

8.Lacy likes soccer

10.He always discovers the truth.

Sometimes it is better to ask the question in an indirect manner using “Do you know” and “Can you
tell me” statements.
- if the question word is with a be verb move the be verb to the end.
Where is the bus stop?
Do you know where the bus stop is?
Where are the ticket machines?
Can you tell me where the ticket machines are?
- if the question word is with do,does, or did, just add the statement but use the correct
form of the verb.
How often do the trains leave?
Do you know how often the trains leave?
What time does the bank open?
Can you tell me what time the bank opens?
How many tickets did he buy?
Do you know how many tickets he bought?

-if the question word is with can or should, move can or should after the subject.
